calories: 625
fat: 40g
saturated fat: 23g
suitable for freezing: yes

FOR THE CAKE:

·         350g butter, softened

·         350g self-raising flour

·         350g caster sugar

·         6 medium eggs

·         Few drops vanilla extract

·         3 tablespoon milk

·         100g white chocolate, melted

·         100g dark chocolate, melted

FOR THE GANACHE:

·         300ml whipping cream

·         200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

·         Few drops vanilla extract

·         White chocolate stars, for decoration

·         3x20cm round sandwich cake tins, buttered, floured and base-lined

1. Set the oven to 190°C or Gas Mark 5.

2. Tip the butter, flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and milk into a bowl and beat well until smooth. Divide the mixture evenly between 3 bowls. Stir the white chocolate into one of the bowls and spoon it out into a cake tin and spread out. Stir the milk chocolate into another portion and spoon into another tin and stir the dark chocolate into the final portion, then spread it out in the last tin.

3. Place the cakes in the oven, with 2 on the upper shelf and 1 on lower shelf. Bake the cakes for 25-30 minutes until they have risen and feel just firm to the touch. The cake on the bottom shelf may need an extra 5 minutes as, depending on the oven, it may not cook as quickly as the top ones. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tins for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

4. To make the ganache: Bring the creamto the boil and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts and mix well, preferably using a stick blender. Stir in vanilla extract to taste. Leave the mixture to cool. Once cold, whisk the ganache until it’s a spreading consistency.

5. Place the white chocolate cake on a serving plate and spread some ganache on the top, then place the milk chocolate cake on top. Spread some ganache over that, then place the dark chocolate cake on the top. Spread the remaining ganache over the top and sides of the cake. Sprinkle over some white chocolate stars. Keep the cake in a cool place until serving.

 

The cake layers may be packed individually in freezer bags and frozen for up to 3 months. Allow the cake layers to defrost before assembling the cake with the ganache. It’s not recommended to freeze the complete cake.
